> Holistic Glossary > Alarm Points
In Acupuncture alarm points
are points on the skin that may become very sensitive in acute medical
conditions. There is a theory that these points may have been the first
points to be discovered, before the system of acupuncture was developed.
On the front of the human body these alarm points are called mu
points, and on the back they are called shu points. Each point
is related to a particular organ. Other points that become tender in certain
conditions and are used as indicators of an underlying difficulty are
called Ah Shi points.
